DGMK-Event / She Drives Energy - Network of Women in Energy Technology

Communicating Science Effectively: Shaping Content, Compelling Delivery, and Stress Management

Messe Offenburg-Ortenau GmbH
Schutterwälderstr. 3
Conference Room 1, 77656 Offenburg

We are happy to announce that She Drives Energy will be hosting a workshop on public speaking as a side event at the 2024 GeoTHERM in Offenburg.


How can we best shape scientific content to different audiences?

How to deliver your talk with confidence in a compelling and memorable way?

What strategies can you use to manage stress?

In this interactive workshop, we will address the art of effective science communication through three main themes. We will first cover how to best tailor the content of your presentation to your audience and examine how to break down your research topic complexity to communicate your work in the most effective way. Second, we will practice on delivering your talk effectively and finally, we will discuss how to handle the stress that can arise from the delivery, including the challenging task of answering the audience's questions and comments.
